Portrait of Nathan Leone by VKMarshmallow Portrait of Nathan Leone by VKMarshmallow
(Breaking my own rules again: Uploading Non-Cartoons. Gasp!)

First time doing scratchboard.... meh. lol

1st Drawing 101 project. It went.... well. Haha (I am very hard on myself about my art...) Things could have gone much better but my professor gave me and A so that's satisfactory. lol I hate scratch board. If you don't know what it is: Scratch board is a white board covered in black ink that you scratch through with a knife. (Kind of like those black covered rainbow papers from elementary school.) This drawing is composed of millions of tiny scratches on a 16x20 inch board. X_X

At first I couldn't decide what I was going to draw. Scratchboard is a scary scary thing and I have never done it before.Three days before I was supposed to bring in a photograph half the size of my body, I went to a concert to see Madina Lake (Awesome band. Go listen to them right now). I had serious artist block and I was thinking about the project the entire time. XD I met Nathan Leone (Singer from the band.) by the bar after the concert and he agreed to pose for this drawing. D: He definitely saved me a lot of trouble and helped me out a lot. Can't thank him enough!

Sorry about the quality. My camera is not having it in this crappy dorm lighting. I will buy a fancy camera when I have money to burn. Unfortunately, art school tuition flies.. *stab stab* I should track down a photography major to lend me a camera.

I will upload some detail photos later. I didn't take many process pictures this time but I have a few of those as well. For now, I have to focus on my finals.
